Subject: Great show to start an underrated year
1) This is a historical record of the first show of '82. That alone should be reason enough.
2) There is clearly no soundboard of this show circulating, so this is all we have.
3) The sound is actually not bad for an aud, try the NOLA 1980 October shows if you want a real 'pocket recording' sound.
4) Some if us enjoy decent auds as they give us a chance to feel the atmosphere differently than a soundboard.
BTW: THE DRAGON BEATS THE SONY
sounds like someone taped it in their pants pocket,
Subject: Good recording

Subject: Wrong about Dolby B
Where to start? You're probably so accustomed to listening to Dolby B encoded tapes without decoding the Dolby that a correctly decoded tape sounds "choked off" to you. The idea that the only deck that can properly play back a Dolby B recording is the one or the model that made it is a myth. Nakamichi Dragons are among the top 5 or so playback decks ever made. 3 heads rather than 2 makes a big difference as well as automatic azimuth adjustment and better Dolby circuitry. Most Sony D-5ms were put through a lot as field recorders and hardly could be expected to stay in perfect spec or even close. Playing a Dolby B tape with the Dolby off is no solution either. Lots of boosted noise and hiss. Once a master is recorded encoded that's it, you gotta decode it to do any sort of genuine transfer.
If to your ears the undecoded hissy source is "better", fine but I'm guessing either you don't know what to listen for or you have a poorly set up audio system or room or both. Most people who not understand how Dolby works hear the boosted highs it creates to cancel hiss later on playback and think, more highs, it must be better. That's wrong. Let your hearing adjust to the smoother cleaner decoded version and the undecoded one will sound distorted. Because it is.
